Firefly genes illuminate tumors in real-time allowing early identification of developing cancers
"A team led by Norman Sharpless, Professor of Cancer Research at University of North Carolina, has developed a strain of mice that turns on a gene from fireflies when the normal p16 gene is activated. In cells undergoing senescence, the p16 gene is switched on, activating the firefly gene and causing the affected tissue to glow." - Ken Morley from Bookmarklet
